Legalising documents during Ramadan

During the holy month of Ramadan it is likely that we will see delays in the legalisation and attestation of documents.

arab embassiesThe holy month of Ramadan is a period of fasting. During the holy month many Embassies work shorter hours as Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. The end of Ramadan is marked by a three day period of special prayers, gift giving and feasts called Eid Al-Fitr.

It is normal practice for the Arab Embassies to close during the Eild Al-Fitr holiday. Closures are typically 4 to 5 working days during which time no documents will be legalised.

We have also been advised by the Arab Chamber of Commerce in the UK and the Arab-Irish Chamber of Commerce in Ireland to expect delays. Many of the commercial and business documents we legalise for international use have to be processed with the Arab chambers of commerce.

We ask all customers to understand that there will be delays to the legalisation and attestation of documents at the time of Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr. Your patience is appreciated and we will aim to complete all orders as quickly as possible.

If you need any further information please contact one our document attestation service team for estimated processing times or updates on your order.
